330 ml bottle - dated best by 01-2021

clear, dark brown, khaki colored head that fades fast. nice malty aroma of caramel and toffee, but some earthy yeast too. similar flavor, good balance so it's not too sweet. thinner bodied, a bit too thin for me, and carbonation is lively as opposed to smooth.

Pours hazy, chestnut brown in color with 1/4inch head. Taste is big alcohol soaked golden raisin, dark bread, and caramel. Medium bodied, medium-high carbonation, and very sweet. Would like more bread taste to this, but it is an interesting take on the style. On the fence as to if I would get this again, but am glad I tried it. Last new beer in 2018.

Pours a creamy beige head. Color is dark brown with garnet highlights.

Nose is caramel and dried cherry.

Taste is dried cherry, hints of spicy phenols. Very dry throughout, with little spikes of sweetness.

The mouthfeel is very smooth, like something out of a cask. Medium bodied and moderately carbonated. The alcohol warmth is very noticable, but not at all harsh.

Overall, this is a solid beer, like just about anything you would get from from any Trappist brewery. While it is very well made, it is not quite as good as some other Trappist brewed Dubbels out there. Still, it is a very well made and smooth drinking beer that is very much worth trying.

Pours a deep amber color with thick foam.

Smell is sweet, predominantly of raisins, clove, and an apple like aroma.

Taste is very rich and just the right amount of sweet. Notes of raisins, spices, and apple.

Mouthfeel is medium. Decent carbonation.

Easy to drink. Very complex flavors that add to the experience of the beer. Overall a very solid Dubbel.

Cerveza de cuerpo ligero y carbonatación media. Al acercarnos a ella podemos distinguir la malta y la banana en su aroma. Una vez en boca es dulce, destacando nuevamente la banana pero también el caramelo y una sensación de almíbar. Ligera y equilibrada.

A big fan of Trappist Dubbel’s. Beautiful large bottle with a cork. No date on label. Poured into a chalace Westmalle glass that I purchased in Amsterdam. The fluffy white head faded quickly. The color is a rich looking dark brown. The taste is semi-sweet, nice carbonation and bread flavors. Overall a great example of the Trappist style.

Pours a deep reddish brown with thick, fine foam.

Smell is sweet, with notes of raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon and cloves.

Taste is sweet and rich. Raisins, plums, spices and a hint of bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a classic dubbel, rich and still easy to drink.

Dark brown with a rocky, 2 fingers of beige head.

Smells of cherries, dark fruits, and molasses.

The taste follows the nose, in a nice, almost perfect balance for a dubbel.

Medium body, slightly syrupy feel. Highly carbonated.

Classic beer I've had many times. This bottle I bought in China over 3 years ago, and have been cellaring it in New Hamburg, ON, where I am drinking it July 7th, 2018.

Pours amber brown with decent head and minimal lacing. Smells of dark bread and caramel malts. Taste is same with heavier notes of caramel malts and a bit of creaminess on the tongue. Overall, great beer but not quite as great as the others I’ve had from them.
